Each "hour" is filled with practical information that will help you develop, debug and publish your Windows Phone 7 application. Even if you are already developing apps, it is great to have a reference at your finger tips. Now if I can figure out how to get the authors to sign my kindle version!

Purchase WP7 App Development in 24 Hours and you will have no excuses left for not creating a Windows Phone 7 application.
The authors tackle the fundamental components to creating a phone app on the Windows Mobile 7 platform.

I jump to the topic in the book as development necessitates the topic. The chapters are written as islands so one can work on each topic in isolations.

Examples are good and easy to incorporate into my applications.

Anyone who knows how to develop applications can use this book to learn how to create apps for the Windows Phone OS. If you know .Net you will see how many things are just the same as developing in .Net for the PC. If you don't this is a great introduction to development for this great platform.
